Tennessee Father Arrested for Insisting on Picking Up His Kids at School

A Tennessee school district recently demonstrated what happens when citizens concede too much authority to local civic institutions. When Jim Howe arrived on foot at 2:00 p.m. on November 14 to pick up his two children attending South Cumberland Elementary School in Crossville, Tennessee, he was told that a new policy mandated that students may leave at that time only if their parents arrive at school in a vehicle to pick them up. Howe was told that he would have to wait until 2:35, when the other students had left, to escort his kids home.

With traffic backed up on a busy highway as parents waited to pick up their kids, Howe and his fiancée, Jennifer Long, decided to pick up the two kids, ages eight and 14, on foot rather than wait in the long line of traffic. As shown on a YouTube video shot by Long, when Howe showed up at the school office, local sheriff's deputy and school “resource officer” ...

The public/state school is really a religious school.

I suppose this is one of those "freedoms" that the U.S. soldiers are protecting. Good job!

I thought so - our friends have a number of foster kids and the state they live in doesn't allow it either... Those kids need the security so badly, a Godly example lived out in their face every moment, and the state denies it. Still, they're better off with people like you than not! My family prays daily for you and yours! Take care!

The school system is with the children more waking hours in a day than the parents - what does one expect? And when the kids see the school boss their parents around, the kids quickly recognize who the authority is.
Barry, I know your situation may be different, with fosters and all. Does KY not allow foster kids to be homeschooled?
No, they have to be enrolled in public school.

I have a question. Why didn't your wife stand her ground and refuse to leave that public school? That is what I would have done. There is no way that I would take any crap from any stupid public school official.
Well, that is a bit complicated, she was intimidated by the principle. She was also a little bit embarrassed when he told her in the front office with everyone there, he should have taken her to his office and explained himself better. It didn't work and in the end we prevailed.

Again, we have given them far too much influence and power with our children.

John, I'm telling you, we have given way, way too much power to these school officials. They claim that what they do is for the privacy and safety of the children. I think it's a control issue!
My son was having issues in P.E. My wife went to watch and see if she could see what was upsetting him and the principle told her she was not allowed to observe our son in class. I called the school and told them that they have to let my wife in, it's a public school that accepts public funds. They have no choice. They finally let her in, it's just simply gotten ridiculous at the stupidity of public education in America!
